    VCC still has that lovely speakeasy vibe. Staff are so friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed and easy-going. Cocktail options are fantastic, and great value for the middle of the city. In my opinion, the food is ok - a smidge pricey for what you get. Overall though, VCC is still a great spot and perfect for catch-ups or kicking off a fun night.

    One of my favourite places any time during the year to go. However, the rush to get tables back is so unpleasant. You seat, take 30mins until someone gets your order, then another 20 mins to have the drinks and or food. Then you can order another round of cocktail, then that's all. You are told the last order is 30 mins before the 2hours schedule and there's rush to drink and leave. Still feeling like pandemic time when you visit the place. I do love this place but is always the same feeling. Not enough time to enjoy the drinks, food or ambience.

    This is the best cocktail lounge we have ever been to. Quick to our table, service was incredibly quick and professional. We had bar seats and was amazed to see how quick the bartender could make 4 cocktails, at a time! The waitress was attentive and both the bartender and waitress went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable. I cannot wait to recommend to friends. Thank you for making our evening!

    Drink were ok, nothing special. Staff were very abrupt about the time the table was available from, and when we would have to be out by. I would rather go to one of the high end hotel bars when I can get better drinks and not be hassled by the staff.

    Vintage Cocktail ClubResponded 4 days agoHi Lucy, Apologies if you felt rushed, our Hosts will only approach a table more than once if the table has gone over the allotted time. We leave 15 minutes between every sitting to re set and sanitize all tables before the next guests arrival. As we don't have a waiting area Its important to us that these times are kept, this ensures the next guests aren't left waiting, and the reason we seat every guest including yourself on time. Have a lovely week, cheers, VCC Team

    Really enjoyed our time at VCC. It was a little noisy at first because a large Hen Party arrived and sat near us but it soon settled and then it was really chilled. The cocktail menu is really good and our waitress was amazing, v friendly and really knew her stuff. We told her what type of drinks we liked and she gave us great suggestions based on our taste. I would definitely recommend it and will definitely book again!

    The cocktails are excellent - the best part about the experience. Unfortunately the dining room was icy cold, and made the entire experience uncomfortable with a draught coming down the stairs. Food was good though very overpriced for the size of the portions.

    We stopped there for birthday drinks and we had an amazing time. Our waitress surprised me with a fun drink with a candle for me to blow out which was such a sweet gesture. She made great recommendations and was so well versed in all the drinks they offered. If you like cocktail bars I highly recommend this place!

    Such a beautiful space and drinks are reasonably priced especially for their high quality, but the staff are so elitist. Also, they hound you at bill time. They offered us a bill 30 mins before our time was up and reminded us 3 tines we needed to leave. For reference, our reservation expired at 7pm and we had exited the building by 7.10 at the latest and that includes a bathroom visit after we left the table.

    Vintage Cocktail ClubResponded on 13 November 2022Hi Gracie, thank you for the nice feedback, not quite sure about the elitist comments. All tables are offered last drinks 30 mins before the end of the sitting, this is to ensure guests have time to sit and enjoy them without feeling rushed. If last drinks are refused, a bill will be left on the table to pay at your convenience. Our hosts only approach the table multiple times if they see the table is staying into the 15 minute grace period we use to reset the table for the next sitting at 7.15

    Cannot recommend this place enough. We went here on a rec from friends in Galway and WOW. The entire experience was superb and made subsequent cocktail bars we visited the rest of our stay (even the ones rated as best in the city) seem lack luster. The service here was phenomenal and the recommendations by our waitress once she realized what we like to drink were absolutely spot on and led to the best round of the night. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a unique and exceptional cocktail experience.
